High commission discusses investment, development with CM Kamal

QUETTA  : Australian High Commissioner to Pakistan Margaret Adamson has called upon Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan to discuss investment opportunities in Balochistan. The provincial chief informed the Australian high commissioner regarding investment opportunities in provincial sectors and the provincial government’s social and economic development initiatives.

“The livestock, mineral, fisheries and agriculture sectors have dozens of investment opportunities while we have opened our doors for international companies by adopting new amendments in provincial investment policy,” Jam Kamal informed Adamson.

He added that the government was utilising all its resources to boost the provincial economy through existing natural resources. “We have been working on strategies to boost these sectors which have the capacity to change the fortunes of the impoverished people of Balochistan.”

Kamal also briefed the high commissioner on the law and order situation in the province. “While the situation is fragile, the provincial government is working on security, while fencing on the border with Afghanistan has helped prevent the movement of terrorists,” he apprised her.

Expressing interest in provincial resources, Adamson said that the Australian government is willing to invest in provincial natural resources and taking part in provincial development through multi-donor trust funds. “We have been providing assistance to the provincial government in rehabilitation of flood victims of Pishin and Qilla Abdullah”, she added.

Friday said that development in Balochistan was crucial for Pakistan and the region’s economic uplift.

She expressed these views while addressing students and faculty at the Balochistan University of Information Technology, Engineering and Management Sciences (BUITEMS) on Friday.

Adamson said Australia would continue to cooperate in the sectors of education, livestock, agriculture and water resources in Pakistan, especially Balochistan. “There are many common aspects among Pakistanis and Australians, of which cricket is on top,” she said.

She said providing quality education to Balochistan’s youth and polishing their hidden capabilities through various educational training programs would ensure their bright future. She said BUITEMS was one of the best educational institutions in Balochistan which was providing utmost research opportunities to young scholars.

The Australian high commissioner also apprised students of scholarship programmes made available to Pakistani students by Australian institutions. “We want Balochistan’s students to take advantage of these scholarships and grants.”

Later, a delegation headed by the Australian high commissioner visited various departments of the university including the Centre of Excellence of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
